Most/many black men are tall and muscular. Most/many women prefer tall and muscular men, so it wouldn't surprise me if black men were considered more physically attractive on average than non-black men.

It doesn't matter if they're the most physically attractive or not, the real question is do they make the best long-term partners?

To many women in long-term relationships and marriages with them, the answer would be yes.

Exactly. Anything relating to black people in such a state stays open for the longest and closes when white people are brought up negatively..

Well, that's selective breeding. You keep taking the fittest males to breed and then repeat with fittest offspring. Years of that will have an effect. I'm only speaking about Black Americans in this respect.

This applies to African Americans more than all blacks. I believe he touches on larger slaves being "bred" more (it pains me to type that). He also talks about how smart blacks were killed and I think he connects it to affirmative action (not 100% sure).

Here is Chris Rock explaining things for those who have forgotten:

Actually, in the US, white men are (on average) slightly taller than black men.

Human height - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Must be something else.

My question is this: Who really cares if one race is considered more attractive than others, on average? What difference does that make to me as an individual?
